What the hell was I thinking. Well... I was thinking that I have just spent a long time and I didn't want it to go to waste. I probably could have added a head support system to help. But at this point I was feeling like a terrible Baba for making my son wear such a monster of a head, and it didn't even have its skin yet. It would be great for someone that is older, but for my 4 year old... yeah, not a solution.
This video should get the point across...
After sulking about my failed first attempt I tried to talk to my son about choosing a different costume. The conversation went something like this:
"We might have to do something else for your costume" I said.
"Why?" he responded.
"Because this is too big and heavy for you."
"You will make it lighter baba." stating with complete confidence.
"I don't think I can make this one lighter." Feeling pretty low at this point.
"You can do it." As he walks away.
This was one of the first times I really got to see how my son looks up to me and thinks that I can do anything. I remember feeling that way about my dad, mom, and older brothers. What was I to do? Shatter that image at 4 yrs old, or man up and figure it out. I obviously choose the latter.
So I got to researching and after some good advice and more idea's I started over... with precious little time left.
